With regard to the current discussions, it is suitable to recall a work of Karl Hecht, which is now published on multiple demand in English tanslation: Health Implications of Long-term Exposure to Electrosmog (first German edition 2012).
The review findings by Karl Hecht – which disappeared into the government archives as soon as they had been submitted and which we are now making available to the public in this brochure in its most comprehensive form to date – are based on the assessment of 878 Russian studies between 1960 and 1997.
The review of the Russian research reports and papers on the long-term effects of electromagnetic fields summarized here had been commissioned by the German Federal Agency of Telecommunications (today the Federal Network Agency). The review results prove that radiation is a cause of multimorbid clinical findings and nonspecific regulatory disorders. That these findings were not welcome by commercial interests is probably responsible for the fact that the 120-page research report immediately disappeared into the archives of the selfsame agency that had commissioned the report in the first place. Likewise, the federal minister of environment was not interested anymore either.
Both of these reactions, we find, are not compatible with public health. Anybody who finds the strength to accept the necessary responsibility will also have to be willing to depart from the dogma that says that harmful biological effects are only possible through thermal interactions. This would be a breakthrough for a research approach that is becoming more aware of the autonomy of life and the modern life sciences … >>>
